4-13-1942-11-26-11 Elaine Zamora, 69, of The Woodlands, went to sleep in her home on November 26th after a brief battle with cancer. This vibrant, energetic mother and grandmother was surrounded by her family and friends from the time of her diagnosis until her last breath. Those hours were filled with love, gentleness, laughter, tears and a special intimacy that occurs when we know we are nearing the end of our bodily time on earth. Elaine was born on April 13, 1942 in Daisetta, Texas to Alfred Anthony Maine and Era Odell Clements. She was the sister of Calvin Clements Manie of Highlands, Texas and Edgrie Mae McElroy (deceased). She loved to tell stories of her high school days when she was a cheerleader and her brother, Calvin, was on the football team for Daisetta. We laughed so much about Calvin hiding in the back seat on her dates. She worked for the Conroe Independent School District for over 30 years as a bus driver. She treasured all the kids that rode on her bus and took such pride in each of them. She appreciated the cards and gifts that she received during her illness. The words and thoughtfulness would bring tears to her eyes and we would finish reading each note and name to her. Left behind are her children: Melissa Zamora-Marentez of The Woodlands with husband Cisco, Jamie Ronacher of Weatherford, Texas with husband Karl, Chris Brand of Conroe with husband Bill, Buck Burgess of Willis, Texas with wife Judy and Val Jones of Missouri with husband Wes. Grandchildren (the football team): Julian, Gabriel, Cristian and Adrian with father Carlos Holguin, Micah Marentez, Amanda Plymate, Jordan O'Leary, Kevin Jefferson, Dustin Burgess and Dana Lynn. A Memorial Service was held on Saturday, December 3rd at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Spring, Texas and a reception followed. The Road Not Taken Robert Frost

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. Elaine was a dedicated and faithful servant of Jehovah God. Her closeness to her congregation kept her in peace with a determination to enjoy her remaining days. She took the road less traveled, which made all the difference in her life and the lives of her loved ones.
